Brotherhood of the American Revolution

Perhaps the most politically explosive time in American history occurred during the nation’s founding, when an extraordinary generation wrested control of the American colonies from England and gave birth to a new, democratic nation. Now award-winning author and professor Joseph J. Ellis (American Creation) invokes the spirit of the revolutionary period by examining the personalities of the remarkable men who fought for—as well as crafted the blueprint for—the creation of the United States.
